Biology Building

Biology Main Common AreaHome to the department of biology, Acadia’s newest academic building on campus was created with the environment and an enhanced teaching atmosphere in mind. The building is designed to meet Gold Level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) standards set by the Canada Green Building Council – a first for academic science buildings in Atlantic Canada. The building uses geothermal energy, recycled rainwater, automatic lighting, and other environmental innovations.

LEEDThe 56,000 square foot, state-of-the-art building, yet to be officially named, represents more than just a building; it represents our ability to remain globally competitive by providing our students with unparalleled educational opportunities and experiences. It enables us to contribute to the evolving teaching and research activities already underway at the University, and it ensures that we can attract and retain top-caliber students and world-class researchers.
